KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewelry Television® (JTV) announced that veteran home shopping celebrity Judy Crowell has joined JTV as a guest host. Crowell, who worked as on-air host at QVC for 15 years and also enjoyed stints at HSN and ShopNBC, will begin appearing on JTV on September 29th to represent JTV's proprietary Stratify™ and Blooming Jewels™ Collections.
Exclusively produced for JTV, Stratify™ is a collection of stylish jewelry offering the same look, feel and allure of yellow, white or rose gold without the associated high prices. The name Stratify™ signifies that each piece is layered in precious 18 karat gold over .925 sterling silver. 18 karat gold, which is 75% pure gold, is one of the most desirable gold karatages to own.
Crowell will also represent Blooming Jewels™, a dazzling collection of flower design jewelry featuring an array of colored gemstones. The same 18 karat gold over .925 sterling silver applies to this collection which showcases colored gemstones including rhodolite garnet, peridot, pink tourmaline, sky blue topaz, African amethyst, and citrine.
"As gold prices continue to soar, we pledge to bring jewelry enthusiasts the jewelry they love at affordable prices," said Pat Bryant, Chief Marketing Officer at JTV. "We're thrilled to have Judy Crowell on board to represent Stratify™ and Blooming Jewels.™ She understands jewelry trends and the home shopping industry as well as anyone in the country," he said.
